All pricing is in New Zealand dollars (NZD) and all hires include Goods and Services Tax (GST).
All drivers must have held a full drivers licence for at least 12 months and must be over the age of 21. Overseas licences are acceptable as long as they are in English. If they are not in English an International driving licence is required.
The hire works on a 24 hour clock, the time you collect the vehicle is the time it is due back to us. If you do not return the vehicle within the expected time then we will charge for an extra days hire. All hires are to be paid for before you can take the vehicle away.
Our insurance excess is $2000. This will be held in a bond before you can take the vehicle away, please see below. We can reduce our excess to $500 which puts an extra $25 per day on your hire. This is only allowed for a three day hire and more. e.g. the car is on a one day hire but the driver would like to reduce the excess to $500, the driver would have to pay $75.
A bond is required for all hires. We will take this bond on collection of the vehicle; it will be held on your credit card and then released once the car is returned to us provided it is in the same condition as it left. A credit card is required to hire the vehicle.
If you as the driver of one of our vehicles incurs an infringement fee (instant fine) for a traffic offence that is not issued personally to the driver at the road side by an enforcement officer (eg parking and speed camera infringements), Realistic Rentals will charge the cost of this, plus an administration fee, to your credit card.
Also any road tolls you incur that are not paid for at the time will be charged against your credit card.
If you return your vehicle early you will not be entitled to a refund of the unused hire period.
The car must be returned with a full tank of petrol otherwise you will be charged $3.50 per litre to fill the vehicle.
